The first lady of the flute returns with a song that clearly states how easy it is for her to create good music. Off The Cuff finds Ragan and longtime collaborators Dennis Johnson and Bob Baldwin along with Phil Hamilton on guitar creating musical magic once again. Off the Cuff is the kind of funky and fun song we’ve come to love from Ragan as she redefines the flute in the tradition of Bobbi Humphrey.
Her skills are out front and center on this breezy lead track from her forthcoming new album. Off The Cuff goes nationwide soon but WCLK is the first station to have it. A new single and hot radio show, Saturdays with Ragan Whiteside on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, definitely heralds the Summer of Ragan!
David C. Linton is Jazz 91.9 WCLK Program Director and host of Serenade To The City, heard Monday-Friday at 10pm.
